Based on communication with the hiker, Big Sky Ski Patrol determined that the hiker needed to be transported off of the mountain. After accessing the situation, Big Sky Ski Patrol requested help from Gallatin County Sheriff Search & Rescue due to the difficult terrain and the location of the hiker.

Volunteers from the Big Sky section and Valley section GCSSAR responded to the call for help with assistance from Big Sky Ski Patrol and a Heli team.

Montana's wilderness can be unforgiving, and it's very important to be aware of your surroundings and be prepared when planning to spend time outdoors. If possible, avoid putting yourself in compromising situations.

Gallatin County Sheriff Dan Springer commends the teamwork of Big Sky Ski Patrol working in conjunction with GCSSAR team members. Sheriff Springer also recommends having a plan for unexpected events, having clothing appropriate for changing conditions, and bringing food and water when recreating in Gallatin County, even if only for a day hike in the mountains.
